Is there a market for high-performance, compact crossovers? AMG sure thinks so, unveiling the Concept GLA45 AMG at the 2013 L.A. Auto Show.

Powered by the brand’s 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, the GLA45 AMG Concept boasts 355 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque giving it impressive performance without compromising fuel efficiency. The powerplant, which is also found in the Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG, is the world’s most powerful four-cylinder engine. And just like the CLA45 AMG, the GLA45 AMG Concept features the automaker’s 4Matic all-wheel drive system.
